Liverpool drew 0-0 at Swansea in English soccer’s Premier League today as Reds manager Brendan Rodgers returned to his former club for the first time since moving to Anfield this year.
Liverpool’s Luis Suarez had a scoring chance with eight minutes to go but shot straight at goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel from a pass by Raheem Sterling, who’d earlier hit the bar. Then Jonjo Shelvey’s shot was saved by Tremmel.
